U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh denied Samsung’s request to lift the preliminary sales injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet that was placed on the gadget in June ahead of the big patent trial with Apple. But as patent guru Florian Mueller explains, Koh denied the move only on procedural grounds, opting to rule on key questions after a remand. Mueller does a great job explaining how the legal proceedings are likely to play out, but here’s his takeaway: “This means this injunction could become an on-again, off-again thing: granted in June, possibly dissolved in September/October and, potentially, reinstated in or after December.” Meanwhile, the tablet market continues to evolve at a brisk pace.
